So as the title says.. I'll be receiving a cat soon (almost 1 month from now) and I want to make sure the cat is 100% ready to move in. so I'll be posting everything here in case there's something I should be recorrected/noted about! (before we move on, I'll be referring to my sister's friend a lot, so let's just call her "Emily") Age: The kitten's currently 1 month old (male) and I'll be reciving him from Emily (my sisters friend) after 1 month ( 2 m old ). I've made some research about when a kitten can leave her mother, the recomanded age is 3 m's. while they average at around 2 m's so I'll be getting him at an acceptable age and yet, I've informed my sister and told her to tell Emily to hold onto the cat for an extra month or atleast half a month ontop of the orignal 1 month if that's possibly, still havent recived a reply so I'll be making a follow-up. Breed: This is quiet the situation honestly... Emily says and I quote "their mother is 'Shirazi' and so we decided to get a male Shirazi as well, but the kittens look more 'Himalayan', and so I think their mother is either hybridize or one of her grandfather's was a Himalayan" yea, honestly I was speechless as well... but she did provide us with some photo's of both parents and the kitten that we'll be getting (The mother is the white one, The father is the orange one, the kitten we are getting is also white. there isn't a photo of all his sibilings in there) --- Photo's --- Kitten's space: The kitten will be living on the 3rd floor of our villa, and his rest area / food / water / need's ...ect will be put inside my room ~(I rarly use it besides for sleeping/changing)~ but she will still have access to the intere 3rd floor. and the reason behind keeping his essentials inside a room is just incase he feels uneasy or uncomftrible (around the people / The temperature / or what ever the reason maybe be) at the 3rd floor she could just go back in my room where no one can go in. that room is also connected to it's own bathroom so the cat can finish her business in there. and on that note, I'm planning on making my rooms door only accesible by me and the cat before she arrives, currently I have 1 idea in mind to make this possible, but if you have any idea's to make this possible that'd be nice. (besides the Square door cut please) (just to clear any misunderstanding, the cat is free to roam in and out of the room when ever she feels like it, but she does not have the ability of leaving the 3rd floor, that's it) Kitten's Equipment /Toys / etc... so besides the basics I'm planning on getting him.. Toys Cat Tree cat Clipper Treats Bed: I need some help picking this one! (options: One, Two or Three ) Window seat Scratching post am I forgetting anything? kitten's diet I've heard that a kittens (less then 1 y.o ) can't get overfed consdering how rapid their body is growing/consuming energy to grow so offering unlimited food shouldn't cause issues until they are over one year old, at that point it should be setted depending on her weight / body fat % I've also heard that cat's for some reason don't like having their water supply and their food supply near each other so I'll serperate those Cat's habit's / training one of the biggest pro's of getting a kitten is that you can get them used to something cat's aren't usually comfertable with. and I want to get him used to mainly... Taking Baths clipping his nails my Father has alleriges around cats in general but he relised that it stops when they take a bath. I did some reasearch and long story short, I'm supposed to give the kitten a bath every day (just for the sake of him getting used to it at the beginning) while giving him treats before & after the bath so he feels like he's getting payed / it's a positive act! (I do understand cat's don't need to have bath's that often at all! but it's for the sake of his allerigies not to mention unlike grown cat's, with proper care/act, kittens can find taking baths (or water in general) a very enjoyable experiance. while cat's normally might find it terrifying if not Traumatizing! as for "Do you know The proper way of giving a kitten a bath?" I've watched this video just to make sure my technique is accure, if you guys have any more videos/post and you feel like I should read about this matter then please! I'm all ears! o-or eye's to be accurete... if you've read all the way till here then you have my eternal gratitude! and please feel free to tell me if I'm being ignoremnt on a sertin point, or else what would be the point of this post!
